Pt. II of Lanthrish Locales
Pt. I "The Great Tower of Skye" [link]
Pt. III "Aleth Hult" [link]
We have arrived to our second stop on the Lanthrish Loacales tour. Palinroe, meaning "Holy Way", is home to the Paladins of the Elemental Lance Orders. Their mountain fortress sits on a dome of solid rock surrounded a by a hot spring that flows forth from deep under the mountain, to a waterfall, and ending in a small lake at the foot of the mountain. The walled pathway leading up the face before you is the actual "Palinroe". The "pivot" towers are crowned with four angels, each representing the angels charged to oversee the elements.
At the very top you can catch a glimpse of the Great Hall and the dome of the Templos en El-Ardana - Sanctuary of the Lord's Elements. A beacon appears on one of four towers about mountain's crown.
The near-approach to the lake bridge is lined with statues of angels bowing and bearing lances.
Around the mountain can be seen several towers and abodes. Most are defensive, some are agricultural. Inside the fortress walls are various building of trade and training. There are keeps provided for each Order of Earth, Water, Fire and Air.
Not all paladins stay here. There are outposts and patrols throughout East Lanthranolund that they traverse, for Lanthrish land is sacred land. A day is coming when the Orders shall face the task for which they were ultimately formed - Battle with the Ungod's Minions . . . . . . . . .
